whatever the speling, they are bunch of people with very very twisted mind. They took a very good idea, and twisted to the n-th degree

Look at it this way. Lobsters and crabs have a brain the size of a cockroach. They are not like Crabby of Sponge Bob Squarepants fame. They do not have the ability to think...or get their feelings hurt.

Would you hesitate to step on a cockroach?

After reading about WFM and it's rediculous slant toward preserving the softshel crab's quality of life (not selling live crustaceans), I did a quick search and found a number of sites showing labor abuse practices for WFM. I thought that maybe I would add my voice of complaint on any forum available through the company's websit. Suprise! There was no link to send a message on the site. But here's a link where you can read about some of their practices. http://michaelbluejay.com/main/wholefoods.html

I find the fact that they place the more value on humane treatment of crustaceans above the humane and fare treatment of their workers. I'm glad that there is not a WFM store near me. I don't think I would shop there if there were.

there are whacko's on both sides of every issue- in most cases, they just deserve to be ignored.... after all, why get your nose out of joint over something that is so obviously whacky?? Life is much too short to go shouting at windmills, so to speak...........

Except that these particular whackos have now successfully removed one of only two possible live soft-shell crab sources in my area. To me, that's a windmill worth shouting at - lol!!!!!

At least you still have one source. If you and everyone else starts shopping there then maybe WFM might feel it in their bottom line.
